I really like the new Firefox however I keep getting back to Chrome since when using the dev tools I need to see the current screensize when resizing. Could this feature be implemented?


You can get the same when you enable the rulers in Firefox:

  1. You have to enable the Rulers Toggle under the DevTools Settings
  2. Then turn it on
  3. Then you should see the dimensions in the top right corner:

Does this solve your problem?

Hello !
It can be implemented for sure, in fact, it’s already here :slight_smile:

  1. Go to the settings panel
  2. Turn on “Toggle ruler” under the “Available Toolbox Buttons” section
  3. Click on the ruler button in the toolbar
  4. Enjoy the rulers and the small page size indicator.

Note that if you are dealing with responsive layouts and have a set of pre-defined page size to check, you can use the responsive design mode and create the sizes that you need :slight_smile:

Thank you but I still do not see the dimensions (window width as a number). I do see the ruler. FF 58.0b5 dev edition, Mac High Sierra. Edit - on Windows I also do not see any dimension numbers as in your screenshots?

Right, this is in Nightly only (pushed 2 days ago :slight_smile: )
This will be in FF 59

Alternatively, you can try to download Nightly to get all the cool stuffs as soon as they are built :smiley:
